Abstract [en]

A regional smart specialization initiative is investigated from a quadruple helix framework (industry, government, academia, and users/civil society). Based on a qualitative case study, we examine the interdependencies of actors, resources, and activities from a micro perspective. The aim is to understand the relationships and the value created between the different actors. From the results we conclude that the fourth helix should be viewed as a whole – an arena where triple helix actors in different value adding relationships take on different roles – where they create value to civil society, for example, new jobs or products for improved elderly care. In line with this, we state that the fourth helix is far more complex than limiting it to simply become a fourth separate helix of users or civil society. There is a complexity in that the fourth helix consists of both different users (including triple helix actors) as well as civil society. Users in the quadruple helix framework can also be defined in several ways depending on the context of the arena (the fourth helix) and what value adding activities they bring to civil society. Thus, users can be businesses, organizations, citizens, society, and many more things.

Abstract [fr]

Une initiative de spécialisation intelligente régionale est examinée à travers un modèle à quadruple hélice (industrie, gouvernement, milieu universitaire et utilisateurs/société civile). En nous basant sur une étude qualitative de cas, nous explorons les interdépendances des acteurs, des ressources et des activités dans une micro-perspective. Notre objectif est de comprendre les relations et la valeur créée entre les différents acteurs. Nos résultats nous amènent à conclure que la quatrième hélice doit être prise en compte dans son ensemble – une arène dans laquelle des acteurs à triple hélice engagés dans des relations à valeur ajoutée jouent des rôles différents – y créant de la valeur pour la société civile, par exemple de nouveaux emplois ou de nouveaux produits pour une amélioration des soins aux personnes âgées. Conformément à cette approche, nous affirmons que la quatrième hélice est bien plus complexe que si elle se limitait à devenir simplement une quatrième hélice distincte composée d’usagers et de membres de la société civile. Une de ses complexités est qu’elle est composée à la fois de différents usagers (incluant aussi des triples acteurs) et de membres de la société civile. Dans le modèle à quatre hélices, les usagers peuvent être définis de plusieurs manières, selon le contexte de l’arène (la quatrième hélice) et les activités d’ajout de valeur qu’ils apportent à la société civile. Aussi, les usagers peuvent-ils être des entreprises, des organisations, des citoyens, la société et bien d’autres choses.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we posit that current Industrial Marketing and Purchasing literature on resource interaction and resource interfaces is hampered by fragmentation and conceptual imprecision, hindering scholars to build systematically on each other's works. To rectify this, a systematic analytical framework acknowledging the empirical variation of resource interfaces along a coherent conceptualization of resources and resource interfaces is suggested to enable further scholarly development. A case study focusing on a central product and the network surrounding the product is used to illustrate the analytical framework. We employ the analytical framework to show how interaction through resource interfaces of a European rail logistics network play out. Our findings suggest that the analytical framework has the capacity to fruitfully distinguish between the multitude of empirical manifestations and the need for a coherent conceptual framework. It also enables explanations of what may seem paradoxical by exploring the deeper cores of the phenomena.

Abstract [en]

IMP research is often treated as an empirical perspective describing complexities of repeated business-to-business exchanges and their embeddedness. While building on some common understandings and concepts, this paper asks: How homogeneous is the IMP research? This paper uses cluster analysis to capture the roots and various sub-groups of IMP research as means to depict the question of homogeneity (i.e. a core focus in the research) or heterogeneity (i.e. using references from other fields or specific to sub-fields) of the IMP thought. In this scientific work in progress paper we introduce how we design to use bibliographical methods in order to harvest data from an extensive amount of IMP-related articles written from the 1970’s onwards. In this first attempt to reveal IMP we used overall 294 articles yielded to 10,615 co-citation relationships. A threshold of minimum number of citations of a cited reference was set to five (5) to capture such references that have been cited in multiple publications. We introduce visual mapping of defined subject area clusters and as an example we describe shortly clusters. Perhaps not surprisingly our findings suggest that IMP research is not so homogenous, with at least four clear clusters of IMP-research each utilizing different key references.

Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the role of networks when emerging-economy firms enter into advanced- economy markets. More specifically, it focuses on how advanced-economy market supplier networks are created by the emerging-economy firm to legitimate it vis-á-vis advanced-economy customers. The purpose of the paper is to examine how emerging-economy firms establish supplier networks in advanced-economy markets in order to gain legitimacy with customers in other advanced-economy markets. The paper thereby highlights a different role of networks in internationalisation than what is portrayed in previous research and illustrates this through two case studies. The supplier networks in advanced economies are used to gain knowledge but also reputation, and thus deals with the liability of outsidership beyond what is described in previous research. The construct of a supplier network to reach a customer network points at two different networks and the connectivity between in them as a means for an emerging-economy firm to become accepted.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: This paper extends the discussion on stability and change through focus on specific relationship characteristics. Quality management systems prescribe established routines for supplier selection and monitoring, and may thereby designate the nature and longevity of customer-supplier relationships. The purpose of this paper is to describe and discuss the effects of quality management systems on stability and change in different forms of customer-supplier relationships.

Design/methodology/approach: A number of illustrative examples based on participatory data and interviews help to capture different types of customer-supplier relationships (private/public; certified/non-certified) related to quality management systems.

Findings: While certified customers in most sectors only need to prove that their suppliers have procedures in place, many customers equate this with requiring that their suppliers should be certified. The paper further shows that customers replace deeper understandings for their suppliers' procedures with the requirement that they be certified.

Originality/value: The paper contributes to the existing literature through integrating quality management systems literature with the business network approach. For business network studies, the discussion on quality management systems as constricting regimes is interesting and provides practical insights to the business network studies as such quality management systems increase in importance and spread.

Abstract [en]

A strategic transformation process of a Swedish agency, i.e. the Swedish Public Employment Service, is discussed from a trust framework. Lately, the agency has been heavily criticized internally (by managers and employees) and externally (by different stakeholders) for failing in fulfilling its goals and deliver inadequate services. In 2014, the agency launched a new strategy – to become trustworthy and to deliver better services to its customers. It was the agency’s attempt to move away from the old authoritarian bureaucratic management style towards introducing trust-based management control. The old and the new way of managing the agency creates tensions that are difficult to overcome and where mistrust at different levels within the organization is a major obstacle affecting the ongoing transformation process. The aim of this paper is to shed light on how trust is reconstructed in vertical and horizontal relationships within a public service delivery agency that experiences an extensive transformation process. Drawing upon a processual case study approach, we have conducted 65 interviews, observations and document studies. The results show how the agency have suffered from low levels of trust in both vertical and horizontal relationships and that low levels of trust in vertical relationships seem to have negative impact on horizontal collaborations within the agency. The paper contributes to previous research in the following ways. First, the reconstruction of trust is discussed from a time perspective, pointing at the importance of discussing the development of trust in terms of a past, a present and a future. Second, within the paper, trust is discussed in both vertical relationships (i.e. relationships between employees/managers) as well as horizontal relationships (i.e. relationships between co-workers) within the same analytical framework, which enables a discussion about the impact of trust development in vertical relationships on the development of trust in horizontal relationships and vice versa.
